Draw the structure of the carboxyl group, OCOOH. Show how a molecule containing the carboxyl group behaves as an acid when dissolved in water.
Chap 17: Equilibrium: The Extent of a Chemical Reaction Equilibrium constant (K): Number equal to a particular ratio of equilibrium concentrations of products to reactants at a particular temperature Law of Chemical equilibrium: At a given temperature, a chemical system reaches a state in which a particular ratio of product to reactant concentrations has a constant value. Reaction quotient: The particular ratio of concentration terms that we write for a given reaction (Mass-action expression) If an overall reaction is the sum of two or more reactions, what is the overall reaction quotient Answer: The product of the reaction quotients What is the reaction quotient for a forward reaction Answer: The reciprocal of the reaction quotient for the reverse reaction.
